UK’s best price and quality

Light. Robust. Unputdownable. Paperback books, bound to last.

Easy to pick up. Hard to put down. Paperback books are made to be read. But they’re also often tossed into suitcases, shoved into pockets, and enjoyed on trains, planes, and sunloungers. It’s important that they maintain their integrity, so that their stories can be told.

Choose from our range of binding options (perfect bound or stapled), paper types and weights, and trim sizes to make sure your epic sci-fi tale or windswept romance novel stays in one piece.

Website is easy to use. Staff answer phone promptly and deal with requests efficiently. Very good value for money and the deliveries are normally on time. One thing to watch: when you order, make sure you spot any errors and rectify them, as the order can be left "hanging".

Absolutely superb service from Jessica Adam and the team. I gave them a small order for forty pounds which had a very short lead time which they met and bettered keeping me fully in touch. Brilliant. The option also to pay a fiver or so for a trial print to see what your design is ending up like is ace. Cant speak highly anough.

Really great service and excellent communication. Would be 5 star but I asked if out parcel could be left with neighbour due to parcels going missing off my front and it was left on my front. Luckily, neighbour took parcel in for me. Other than that cannot fault service.

I like original gifts so I decided to draw and print a birthday manga for my sister <3 I chose Mixam as I read happy reviewes online and that was BRILLIANT IDEA!! I highly recommend the service, everything was perfect, from easy creating process, through order and communication with a stuff, to the very quick delivery! The quality of the product is absolutely lovely, also I'm 100% delighted by the process of creating - free 3d Preview for right or left binding, and very helpful staff - everything so easy! Also I received couple more copies for free, it's super lovely as I can work on it further too! Moreover, I got free PDF of my job - super cool! Mixam definitely do their best and go for it, you won't be disappointed, honestly. I can't wait to order again! Thank you! Lajla Akaisora

Fantastic service! Quality of the printing was top notch and price was very competitive. Only issue I had was contacting the company, I had a query, which I emailed to them and I did not receive a reply. Other than that, great website and beautiful cards to give away at my art exhibition

An affordable service, easy process from start to finish, clear communication throughout, a quick turnaround and a good quality product to show for it at the end. It was a pleasure to have the first print run of my first comic book done with Mixam. I’ll get back to my drawing and will definitely be back. Thankyou.

This is a great company. The production is excellent and the turn-round time is very impressive. The most useful facility is the easy-to-use interface which allows easy re-ordering of pages prior to production. The prices, too, are impossible to beat. All-in-all, I'm very happy with the service I've had over the half-dozen orders I've already placed with Mixam over the past few years.

I was looking for a printer that could offer quality products at fair prices, and Mixam ticked both boxes. I needed thick workbooks printed for a work project and struggled to find anywhere that could provide stapled booklets for my size books. With the current Covid-19 circumstances, price was very important in my decision making of printer, which is why I was wanting stapled workbooks, but it was also important that the books were well made with a professional finish. The process of ordering was super quick and easy, it was great to see the workbooks on the screen from a simple upload and it picked up any errors automatically. Communication was great throughout and they were delivered within 4 days of ordering. The finished products were fantastic, so pleased with how they turned up. Will definetely be ordering from Mixam again!
Info for file setup

Paperback book print
file setup information

How to supply your print files
You can supply your files in a way that suits you - as single pages or spreads, individual files for each page, or as a single combined file.
Important - your cover
Your cover is made up of four pages - a front cover, an inside front cover, a back cover, and an inside back cover.
Bleed
We ask for a 3mm bleed on all paperback books. Please do not include any important content within this area.
Format and orientation
You can choose either an A4 (210 x 297 mm) or A5 (148 x 210 mm) format, and a landscape or portrait orientation.
Binding
The binding options available for paperback books are perfect bound or stapled. For books with fewer than 25 pages, we recommend printing as a booklet.
Please note:
These available binding options are entirely dependent upon the number of pages and paper weight selected for your order. This is because there comes a point where the combined paper thickness is too much to effectively staple or stitch together, and will instead need to be held together by adhesive (otherwise known as ‘perfect binding’).

The opposite is true if there are too few pages for perfect binding to work. Our dynamic ordering system is smart enough to know when a limit has been reached, and will automatically switch to the required binding option.

Spine (for Perfect Binding)
If you choose perfect binding you have the option to upload the spine as a separate print file. The spine depth is calculated and displayed in the shopping cart. If you do not upload a print file for your spine it will be left blank.
The spine will also need a 3mm bleed at the top and bottom.
Completing your order
Before you can complete your order, you must make sure all page placeholders have been completed. For example, if you are ordering 32 pages, all 32 boxes must be filled. If you do not have enough content, you must add blank pages.
